Ryan O' Shea

Future Grind Podcast

Would you like to find out what the future holds for wearable tech? Meet one of the major pioneers of implanted human robotics.

A futurist in practice. A television producer. A practical transhumanist. And the person to show you the vast possibilities of wearable tech.

Ryan O’Shea is a television producer, entrepreneur, and futurist speaker from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. He is the host of the Future Grind podcast, which focuses on topics relating to science, technology, and futurism. Ryan also is the Head of Media and Business for the biotechnology company Grindhouse Wetware, which creates technologies that augment human capabilities. This has earned him considerable media attention from those who rightly feel that they are “building the future.”

Grindhouse Wetware has been featured in National Geographic, Wired, Popular Science, VICE, SyFy, Business Insider, and NPR among many others. Ryan also represented Grindhouse as a nominee for a TIME and Fortune magazine affiliated World Technology Summit award in 2014. Ryan is currently deep into talks with various productions companies and networks who want to create a television series about his work.

In addition to his biotech and futurism work, Ryan produces content for The Buried Life, an organization best known for their hit MTV television series of the same name. The show follows four millennials as they travel North America (and the world) attempting to cross items off of their list of ‘100 Things To Do Before You Die.’ For each item they cross off of their list, they help a complete stranger cross something off of theirs.

Since the show ended, Ryan and The Buried Life have continued to inspire people to go after their goals and live the life they want through a New York Times bestselling book, an international speaking tour, and a brand new forthcoming television show. Previously, Ryan held a position in a congressional office at the US Capitol. He’s also an active volunteer currently serving on various committees and philanthropic organizations. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2012.
